= How to write technical help requests and bug reports

<Ciro Santilli> often sees all those genius who are much smarter than him making <shitty> forum/mailing list posts, they need to learn this:
* The apparently most important one liner error message must appear in the title, and fuller apparently relevant logs must appear on the body
* You must always give the version of the software that you are using as either a tag or git SHA

  These are an important part of the <minimal working example>.
* For build errors, you must give your OS and compiler version and version of any relevant external library
